It was one of the best of Frampton’s 20 wins, a stoppage to go alongside 13 already gathered, and he can look with some confidence now to adding to his bank account and reputation in America, where reside the real targets of his ambition: Guillermo Rigondeaux and Léo Santa Cruz. However, in the immediate aftermath, he expressed a strong desire to end the long-running feud he has had with Scott Quigg. “I want a quick fight in the summer,” he said. “That’s a score I’ve got to settle.”
